Brouwer, Rebecca Namenek; Deeter, Christine; Hannah, Deborah; Ainsworth, Terry; Mullen, Catherine; Hames, Betsy; Gaudaur, Heather; McKellar, Tara; Snyder, Denise C. – Journal of Research Administration, 2017
The field of clinical research has changed considerably in the past 20 years. As the work in this realm has come to embody far more than the pursuit of improved patient care, this has meant that staff supporting the research are asked to take on additional responsibilities, learn new processes, and be continuously educated on modernized policies…
